Every Thursday Patrice and her coursemates would go through something like a practical, to put their skills of preparing and serving food to customers in action. And, I felt guilty for not able to make it one Thursday noon to witness Patrice in action, so I decided to make it up on the Thursday 3 weeks ago (September 11). I was accompanied by Ben.
We reached KDU's Bon Appetit at about 12:05pm, which was 5 minutes late. We were quickly served by Patrice's colleague / coursemate. Ben ordered a Teriyaki Chicken Rice set, while I ordered Tandoori Chicken Rice set. Each came with appetizer, fruits and coffee/tea, and cost RM12 per set.
The food served was not bad, considering that the cooks were all students. The best was the appetizer - tomyam chicken pai tee (Patrice, please correct me... LOL). It was fantastic.
The service was okay too in overall. There were 5 waiters/waitresses serving our table! LOL! Perhaps by Patrice's command... just kidding. I could sense that the service was provided in a very cautious manner. The few comments that I have:
- Perhaps the entree could be served in a smaller (rectangular) plate. The reason was that the table was small, and the portion was less than half the size of the plate.
- A waitress accidentally removed the dining spoon from Ben's seating. Ben had to sit there for a minute after entree was served before he could "itadakimasu" (:-P).
- [This was from Ben] The bill should be shown only to the one who called the bill (me... :-)). [This was from me] The bill should be held horizontally and not slanting (coins or notes would fly off).
Hmm... too bad Patrice was not serving us. Nevertheless, we got our sole entertainment - Lim Mei Mei was around! Hehehe... Patrice, you are free to share this post with your coursemates. :-)
